Hello Finer,


The eyelids consist of skin tissue, subcutaneous tissue, muscles, meibomian glands, and palpebral conjunctiva. Tumors / bumps on the eyelids can be sourced from these structures. Eyelid tumors are generally divided into benign and malignant tumors (cancer).


Benign tumors on the eyelids can be caused due to the following disorders:

Sebrroheic keratosis / basal cell papilloma. Often found in adults, in addition to the eyelid area can also appear on other parts of the face. Bump color is usually darker / brownish, rough surface, the amount is usually 1.
Squamous papilloma. Tufted lumps, lump color like normal skin color or darker, smooth bump surface, slow growth. Often found in adults and the elderly.
Capillary hemangioma. Lumps are usually 1 fruit, reddish or purplish, size varies up to 0.5 cm, easily bleed when touched.
Dermoid cyst. The surface bump is slippery, feels soft, sometimes it cannot be moved if it is attached to the deeper parts.
Xanthelasma
Fibroma or tumors of soft tissue under the skin. Usually there are no complaints of pain, slippery surface, increase slowly, no skin discoloration.
etc

Malignant tumors on the eyelids can be:

Basal cell carcinoma. Enlarge quickly, do not give complaints of pain, the edge rises and is centered.
Squamous cell carcinoma. Lumps easily form wounds and bleed, grow rapidly and compress the surrounding structures (including the eyeball).
Adeno cell sebaceous carcinoma. A lump is one in number and causes even eyelid swelling. When enlarged it will turn yellowish.

To ensure the cause of the lumps in the eyelids that have been old and getting bigger it should be checked by an eye specialist. The doctor will ask for a history of your complaint and check the lump. In certain cases biopsy can be done at the same time surgery to remove the lump.


Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
